Interesting articles about a Garfield affordable housing/infill project:

Garfield Glen will add 45 new rental units to neighborhood, celebrates groundbreaking

New Affordable Housing Project Breaks Ground In Garfield « CBS Pittsburgh

Garfield Glen will provided energy-efficient rent-to-own units, and that sort of thing is how you can help working class households remain in redeveloping areas.

I love Aggie Brose. I can hear her voice and how excited she gets from reading the article. When she talks about Garfiled and the surrounding area her face lights up. She's a good soul.

They are an interesting variety. I like some and others are just sort of odd. They seem like 1000-1500 sq ft. Some attached, some stand alone. Most are at least half done now.

Seems cool. I've driven by them and missed this thread when it was posted and wondered what the activity was. Some of them look really small, smaller than 1000 sq ft., but maybe that's just my drive by perspective. Any word if tenants are lined up? There's often a stigma with that sort of thing, so I'm hoping there is careful selection of who moves in to prove that there can be good potential with targeted affordable housing for working low-income families.
